EDITOR’S NOTE: Updated for 2024. 

Spring and summer are great for a lot of reasons. No more frigid winter temperatures. No more ice and snow. Baseball. Cookouts. Swimming. It’s great.

Except for the parts that are not so great. Heat and humidity. Bugs. The sun coming up early in the morning.

And the lawn.

I’m sure there are plenty of people who love tending to their lawns. I’m sure there are plenty more people who would rather spend their days doing other things besides fighting the endless war against growing grass, weeds, and other lawn care challenges.

Aldi is no hardware store, but the supermarket has sold lawn care equipment for years. Past offerings include weed trimmers, hedge trimmers, and even lawn mowers. Another regular in the lineup is this cordless blower.

What We Know:

Ferrex 20V Cordless Blower

The Ferrex 20V Cordless Blower (Product Code: 814261 in 2022; Product Code: 831552 in 2024) is an Aldi Find, which means you can only find it in stores for a short time. Once Aldi sells out, you won’t be able to find it in stores until it comes back the following year. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that aren’t in stock at your local store.

This sold for $39.99 in April of 2024 and in April of 2023, which is $10 less than what it went for in 2022 when Aldi sold it for $49.99. This this blower still costs less than most other 20-volt blowers I can find.

The 2023 blower came with a 3-year warranty serviced by Positec Group. Positec is the company behind the Rockwell and Worx brands. Aldi has not yet published information about whether the 2024 blower has a warranty.

According to Aldi, the 2023 blower’s features included:

  • DC voltage: 20V
  • Blow speed: 120 mph
  • Compact, lightweight design for easy one-hand operation
  • Easily clears debris from hard surfaces like driveways, decks and garages
  • Battery: Lithium 2000mAh; 3–5 hours charge time
  • Includes battery with level indicator and charger
  • Soft grip handle
  • Rubber overmolded grip for added comfort
  • Three-year warranty

What We Don’t Know:

We haven’t yet put this blower to the test ourselves. That’s why we’ve created this open thread for users to share their experiences.

    Weakest link usually the battery. Where would you find a replacement? Better to stick with a name brand.

    • I’m with you Duke. Where indeed! It’s often a confusing maze dealing with product issues with Aldi. They surely could be more transparent.

    • Where can I purchase a second rechargeable battery for my 20V 120 mph Ferrex cordless leaf blower?

    • I agree, my battery died after about 4 uses. Is it the battery or the charger. I don’t know, but I don’t see where I can purchase it unless I pay the price of the whole set.

  2. Run, don’t walk away from this if you have more than lightweight debris to blow away. For comparison tests of the best cordless blowers, I’ve found https://www.protoolreviews.com/best-cordless-leaf-blower-reviews/ is the best and no subscription required.

  3. I have used mine for the first time and it was very good. Light weight and able to handle all my residential needs. My first thought was battery life and reolacement. I called the customer service and they had over 200 in stock and are warranteed for 3 years of life. For the price and light residental usage i.e. garage,deck and lawn I think it is a good value.

  4. Just bought one…..interesting that you don’t have to register the product now, just request service after the fact. This is great….

  5. Hi, I’m in need of new charger love the light weight blower , however we cannot charge the battery anymore, it’s only a year old. Help????

    • Did you ever find a charger? I lost mine. The blower works great and battery lasts a long time. I fit it in a black and decker charger, but it won’t charge it.

  6. I love the blower also. I am a farmer and use it to blow off the equipment. Very s
    mall to carry in cabs.

  7. You get what u pay for….. it’s a $40 blower, u can’t ask for more. I can blow light debris from around my home, porches, deck, driveway, also clean lawnmower. If u need dbl duty then spend $200 on one. I would like to purchase a 2nd battery….does someone know where I can buy one.

  8. I see others inquiring as to how to purchase a new battery and/or charger for the Ferrex cordless blower purchased at Aldi, but there are no replies.
    Is it possible to purchase these replacement parts??

    • Your best bet is to contact the company that services the warranty for this product. Links to that contact info are in the post above.

    • No battery replacement available from Aldi, Merotec USA, or Fore Tools, the parts supplier. Worst purchase ever. We are forced to toss plastic blower into landfill when battery dies in 9 months, just after the m6 month warranty. Such a scam. Product warranty is indeed 3 years, but without a battery, it’s worthless.

  9. It is a cold December and I am still using my blower from May 2023 to blow my last remaining leaves. I have RA and it is lightweight and easy battery installation. The blower tube slenders down to the end creating more air force which I like. No this is not your high end professional blower but it does simply task. I just need to purchase a 2nd battery so I can work longer.

    • This comment was helpful as I have RA and Lupus and it’s good to know that I could handle this without much difficulty. Thanks!

  10. This is returning to Aldi the week of April 10th, 2024.

  11. I lost my battery charger for the leaf blower….any idea where to buy a replacement?

  12. My battery died for good after one use. I did not keep my receipt so I am not happy.

  13. We’ve had one for three years and it’s been great. The charger has died though and can’t seem to find a new one.

  14. My battery won’t charge on 2024 ferret blower

  15. After one time use my blower Ferrex not working
